Results from the Post Fantasy League week 5

GAMEWEEK 5 produced more excitement and unexpected statistics for our Post Fantasy Football League. Liverpool’s Yossi Benayoun yielded a massive 24 points thanks to a sublime hat trick against Burnley, although fortunately nobody had the foresight to place him as their captain.

Interestingly enough, the week’s best manager was none other than Ken Gadaffi, our weekly columnist on local sports, who is unfortunately disqualified from claiming the Cellcard US$20 phone voucher and T-shirt.

The spoils instead pass to Mick Wade with his team Phnom Penh Villa, whose score of 87 points was just one less than the Gadaffi Bombers. Both their teams featured choice picks such as Benayoun, Sunderland striker Darren Bent (10 points) and Bolton defender Gary Cahill (10 points).

Other players who peformed well over the weekend include the Blackburn combo of David Dunn and Jason Roberts, as well as Sunderland’s Andy Reid and Fulham’s Damien Duff.

The Phnom Penh Post league is currently ranked 657 out of 174,716 leagues around the globe, so it’s in the top percentage point. Well done for all our members; don’t let it slip now.

So, onwards to next week’s installment. Deadline: Saturday at 5:30pm Cambodian time.
Watch out for injuries picked up from midweek Champions League matches to big-name players.
